Finally some progress on this sucker! I needed to do some modifications for the length of my torso, so tracing the pieces for this took longer than it would have…and there are a pretty good number of pieces…and then I had to figure out what fabrics I had enough of to make a muslin, both outside and lining…and on and on and on.
But, all the pieces are cut out and it’s just a matter of sewing it together now!
…sometimes the best pictures come out of my checking my lighting. This one made me giggle. So serious and “strike a pose” for somebody who has a bunch of random scraps of fabric on her head!
I’m honestly super excited for this “muslin” to be done. The blue is from some secondhand curtains I’d bought years and years ago because they were like, $3 and I loved the fabric. It’s horrible, plasticky polyester on the back, but all of that is going to be inside the coat, and the front is gorgeous!
The patterned grey flannel you can see in these shots is actually the lining. It won’t show much when I’m wearing the coat (that blue is a big, thick facing along the neckline edge so when the hood folds back all you see is the external color), but it should make it wonderfully snuggly and comfy.
Fancy dancy lady on the outside, jammies on the inside. My kind of piece.
I’m a little worried this is going to wrinkle like crazy when it’s done…but…maybe it’ll wrinkle in a cool way? We’ll have to see!
